In Memoriam

Remembering and honoring our staff who are no longer with us.

Staley Jackson

In Memorium
We all here at Family Pet Care want to dedicate this page to Staley. Staley was a true angel walking this earth, and we were so blessed to have been lucky enough to know her and to work with her. She will always be here as part of “Our Team.” There could never be a person better than Staley to show each and every one of us how we should live our lives. Staley always had a smile on her face and would go above and beyond the call of duty to take care of our clients, their pets, and her co-workers. She loved God, life, animals, her family, and helping others. She has been known to have helped people pay their bills when they were in a bind. She worked as a receptionist at Family Pet Care from 2005 until 2016, when she became too sick from Acute Leukemia to work. If you have ever been in our office when she was working, you will remember her smiling face and her kind words, and her helpful attitude. Staley was one of a kind, and we miss her every day. I would like to thank her parents and her brother for all their support and for assisting us with creating this memorial on our website. Fly high sweet Staley, as we know you are walking in the most beautiful place, and we will see you again one day.

Jessi Jolley

In Memorium
Jessi grew up at Family Pet Care and was very close to Staley. Jessi worked in the kennels taking care of our boarding pets and had started helping the doctors in rooms and surgery. She loved assisting in the surgery room and helping animals in need. She was attending Auburn University, where she had decided to study psychology and planned to be a children’s or women’s counselor. Jessi was a great friend to so many and touched many people during her short time here on Earth. She died in a tragic car accident on June 20, 2020. She is missed deeply, but we know she is flying high with Staley in a beautiful place, and we will see them both again one day. We love you, sweet Jessi, and we know you are watching over us daily.
